pavone, the first-time fiction author of "the expats," a timely tale of intrigue involving a c.i.a. operative. alex stone who has a masters degree in physics and decided instead to become a magician because i believe you wrote, "it makes you be less a nerd," which is always a good ambition. his book is "fooling houdini." and the ever-reliable dan balz, who is back with more tealz of army special agent john fuller for his 25th novel "the forgotten." gillian, i want to start with you. just a masterpiece of writing, your book. i don't want to give away too much of it. so i'll let you tell us. but it is the story-- it is a thriller but it's told in a very unusual way, and basically, it's about trust in a marge that sort of went wrong. >> it's about nick and amy dunn. they're a married couple, and amy goes missing on her five-year anniversary, and it starts with that very basic premise, but the story is told as kind of a he said/she said sort of story. so it's told from nick's point of view, on the day she goes missing and as he quickly starts to become a person of interest, we don't kn
nominated yet simply because she went on the television and repeated what the cia was saying at the time, that was completely unsustainable. tomorrow ricks said it it right. that was completely political. the facts have shown that she wasn't lying. she was repeating what the cia had said was their best guess at that moment. it turns out to have been wrong. but to try to block her from being secretary of state simply for that was completely unsustainable and, you know, the meetings that are going to happen this week are the first step in her confirmation if the president does nominate her. i think that it would be very difficult for them to stop her. >> now, joe, they hammered ambassador rice. mccain hammered her but now he seems to be changing his tone. look at what he said then and look at what he is saying now. watch this. >> susan rice should have known better and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. >> we will do whatever's necessary to block the nomination that's within our power as far as susan rice is concerned. if this select committee if appointed clears her of any wr

of congressmen, including minority leader eric cantor. david petraeus lost his job as the head of the cia. analysts it was all caught up in what has been labeled the military adulteress complex. does that about summed it up? >> yes, it does. it is really unfortunate. it is not the people have never had affairs in high positions in government. cia directors have even had affairs in the past. and we did not fire them over it. but these are different times. my view is that it should have been investigated, because there was a to -- a potential compromise of national security. if they found nothing, and so far they have found nothing, then patraeus should have been read the riot act by the president and should have stayed and none of us would have known. but i have to say that everyone i know in high office in the military establishment tells me i'm wrong. they say you cannot have that kind of person in that high of a position at demonstrating that kind of judgment been compromised that way. >> i agree entirely with nina, and i don't think i've ever said that on the show in 21 years. unless t

those between the head of the c.i.a. and his mistress. . >> jon: if there was a guy having a mistress that should be monitored, wouldn't it be our top sty spyguy? isn't that the whole idea, you don't want to blackmail the top spy? >> so many people knew about this, there was nothing to blackmail. the f.b.i. knew about this from the time they did a background check on general petraeus. >> jon: that's in the foible file. >> i haven't seen the file -- >> stephen: judge. >> having been the subject of a background check i know what they can find out. >> jon: when did you get a barque ground check. >> to go on the bench. >> jon: oh, i thought it was fox.

and accountability for the program. the aclu has taken that argument to federal court where it's suing the cia to release more information. joining us now, a key lawyer in that very case, the national deputy legal director for the aclu. thank you for being here. first let's look at the revelations in this "new york times" article. the white house is concerned about how a future president, president romney, would operate this program and sought to write secret rules, nothing public, which you say in your lawsuit is required under the law, but secret rules to govern it. what is the meaning of those secret rules and would they automatically govern a future administration? >> first, i think they're right to be worry bed how a future administration has used these powers. they have carved out these very broad powers, essentially the authority to kill anyone who is deemed by the executive branch, deemed by the president to be a threat to national security can be killed without due process, can be killed without charges, without disclosure of the evidence, and in fact can be killed without even an ack

. there have been more than 300 strikes conducted in pack stab by the cia under president obama. the times report a debate remains whether drones should be an absolute last resort or an option with more flexible uses. according to critics, they have been flexible enough accusing the white house of ignoring international law on the subject. let'sit this all through the spin cycle. and a couple of things here. as a liberal i am sort of troubled by how much we use drones and in particular the lack of transparency here. we really don't know exactly what's going on. but i will say this. one aspect i think that's not brought up is there is an actual moral case to be used for drones, which is this. because of the nature of the ins strument, you can actually be more targeted than other options and studies show there is actually less collateral damage from the use of drones than from other options. there was a study that showed, you know, the proportion of civilian deaths is between 4% and 20%. for drone use. comparable tactics, more like 46%. so there is a moral case to be made there also we shoul
